Wendy Baker

We are not going to get into a discussion of who was the best female athlete in ELHS history or athlete in general. We here at the Historical Society aren't qualifed for that task.

One female, Marci Reed '99, with 13 monograms, may have received the most varsity letters of any athlete ever to participate in interscholastic sports for the Potters, male or female.

However, there is one Lady Potter who excelled in two sports and as a result of that Wendy Baker holds one distinction that no other Lady Potter has achieved to date. She is among approximately a dozen Lady Potters who were inducted into The ELHS Athletic Hall of Fame having been inducted in 1996.


The unique distinction is, she has been the only Potter athlete, male or female, to have been inducted into a second High School Athletic Hall of Fame having been inducted in the OVAC Hall of Fame in 2006.




"To this date she is the only ELHS athlete inducted into the OVAC Hall of Fame. Her records still stand in girls Basketball and softball. . . her ball remains in the glass case as well as her photo hanging in the hallway at the high school gym." Ruby A, Weymouth ELHS class of '86.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
